Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco speak in Portland
Aladdin Theater

Stop Fascism: Chris Hedges & Joe Sacco Talk About Resistance. A benefit for KBOO Community Radio. $20/ticket

Pulitzer Prize–winner Chris Hedges and Portland-based award-winning cartoonist and journalist Joe Sacco set out to take a look at the sacrifice zones — areas in America that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit, progress, and technological advancement. The story of that journey became the book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt”, a critically-acclaimed union of graphic novel and searing indictment of global capitalism’s effect in places like Camden, New Jersey; West Virginia; Pine Ridge, North Dakota; Immokalee, Florida; and New York.

The portrait of misery, painted from post-industrial America and published in 2014, has not changed. Or has it? And how?

Join Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco as they discuss the mechanisms for resistance that exist and explore the current state of revolt in the United States.

KBOO Community Radio is proud to host this important discussion. This exclusive, one time only event is a benefit for KBOO Community Radio, and all proceeds go to one of the region’s longest running independent media outlets.

Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, Princeton University professor, author, and activist, as well as a columnist for the news and commentary website Truthdig. He also hosts a weekly interview show called ‘On Contact,’ which airs “dissident voices” currently missing from the mainstream media. He has written 11 books, including “Wages of Rebellion: The Moral Imperative of Revolt,” (2015) and the New York Times bestseller “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” (2012), which he co-authored with Portland-based comics journalist Joe Sacco.

Joe Sacco was born in Malta, and lives in Portland, OR, where he makes his living as a comics journalist. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in journalism. His comic book, “Palestine”, won an American Book Award in 1996, and his graphic novel, “Safe Area: Goradze”, about his time in Bosnia, won the Will Eisener Award for Best Original Graphic Novel in 2001. Sacco’s most recent major work is a book about the southern Gaza Strip, Footnotes in Gaza, was published in early 2010; it received the 2010 Ridenhour Book Prize.

KBOO Community Radio serves communities through our free broadcast training programs — including the Youth Collective: a youth mentorship program, media co-sponsorships for grassroots groups, local citizen-produced news, live in-studio music program, remote broadcasts from community events, and more.

KBOO has served the Willamette Valley and Columbia Gorge since 1968. We broadcast live 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on 90.7 FM Portland, 104.3 FM Corvallis, 91.9 FM Hood River, and worldwide at kboo.fm.

Drive In - Sleep Out to Put the Brakes on Homelessness in Beaverton! (Family Promise of Beaverton)
through Beaverton Fountain Park

Join Family Promise of Beaverton by Putting the Brakes on Homelessness in Beaverton!

For one night only, come Drive In - Sleep Out with us June 10th at the Beaverton Fountain Park.

You can participate in one of two ways. Commit to spend the night in your car, as a Driver, to raise awareness and money to help end family homelessness in Beaverton. We understand that not everyone is able to sleep in their car overnight, no worries! The second option is to become a Backseat Driver and participate in the event with the option of going home when we turn in for the night.

Please ask friends, family, and others in the community to pledge a flat amount to support you, the Driver, and Family Promise of Beaverton. Drivers can have passengers come along for the ride and help raise funds too. Register your car for just $25. We encourage Driver's and their team of passengers to raise $100 in pledges, however we'd get really revved up if your car brings in more than that. Prizes will be given for the cars that raise the most money. Food, games, music and a movie in the park will kick your fun into overdrive! Funds raised will go to support Family Promise of Beaverton.

Last year, over 1,600 students in the Beaverton School District were affected by housing instability or found themselves without any shelter at all. Please help families take a U-Turn toward success in an effort to make sure every student has the stability they need.

Family Promise of Beaverton is a Social Services agency in Beaverton, Oregon. "We are a united community helping stabilize and transform children and their families experiencing homelessness in Beaverton."

Stop Making Sense, a benefit for the 4th Dimension Recovery Center
Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton

This special screening is part of the Art House Convergence's national day of celebrating the life of Jonathan Demme. Theaters across the country will join in by screening Demme’s iconic concert film, complete with a special pre-recorded intro and Q&A featuring Demme himself, David Byrne, and Janet Maslin.

STOP MAKING SENSE is considered by many to be the greatest rock concert film EVER!!

J. Hailey writes:

David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.

Reserve your seat in advance and make a donation to tonight's nonprofit recipient, 4th Dimension Recovery Center. This community space provides a fun and safe environment for young people in drug and alcohol recovery to take action, build community, gain knowledge, and become empowered.

The setting is Camp Firewood, the year 1981. It's the last day before everyone goes back to the real world, but there's still a summer's worth of unfinished business to resolve.

He is busy trying to save the camp from a deadly piece of NASA's Skylab which is hurtling toward earth. All that, plus: a dangerous waterfall rescue, love triangles, misfits, cool kids, and talking vegetable cans. The questions will all be resolved, of course, at the big talent show at the end of the day.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization.

Founded in 1976 by refugees for refugees, the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization promotes the integration of refugees, immigrants and the community at large into a self-sufficient, healthy and inclusive multi-ethnic society.

NW Natural

The Oregon Commission on Hispanic Affairs (OCHA) invites you to join us for the Latinos Unidos for Change fundraiser on August 23, from 5:30 - 7:30pm in the downtown Portland NW Natural roof garden/event space.

Latinos Unidos for Change is an evening of networking, when our community joins with state and business leaders, students, the Governor's office, legislators and special guests to raise awareness of Latino and Hispanic achievements and challenges, honor those who have made a difference in our communities statewide, and raise funds for the leadership development work of the OCHA, including scholarships for student leadership training and other opportunities that grow Latino leadership statewide. The OCHA is a Governor-appointed body tasked with advising state leaders, including the Governor and legislators, on policy issues, matters of importance to Latinos, public policy research and legislative advocacy.

This year's moving keynote speaker is Representative Teresa Alonso León. Representative León will share her inspiring story of barriers broken, hurdles overcome, and thoughts on what it takes to become an empowered leader and elected official.

Former Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Paul J. De Muniz will join us to introduce OCHA's special honorees, Maria Ramos Underwood and Former Representative Dr. Joseph Gallegos. Maria is a catalyst for change and tenacious leader dedicated to improving the lives of others. Ms. Underwood is the lead fundraiser for La Clinica in Southern Oregon, an active board member, volunteer for the Health Care Coalition of Southern Oregon, Jackson County Emergency Food and Shelter Program and Medford's Family Nurturing Center, and serves the steering committee for SO Health-E, a regional health equity coalition. Dr. Joe Gallegos has dedicated his career to supporting the Latino community by expanding and providing mental health services for over four decades across the U.S. as a Social Worker and as a leader in numerous nonprofits; as faculty member and lecturer at University of Portland and Pacific University, and as elected legislator to the Oregon House of Representatives.

Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG)'s Portland Election Watch Happy Hour & Fundraiser
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub 915 SE Hawthorne

PORTLANDIANS & Oregonians!: Interested in ensuring fair elections in our country? Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) Foundation is launching a groundbreaking, non-partisan Election Watch program and we need your help! http://www.lawyersforgoodgovernment.org/

Think voter suppression and erosion of voting rights cannot happen in Oregon? Think again.

Exhibit 1: Oregon Proof of Citizenship to Vote Initiative. Signatures are now being sought to put this on the 2018 ballot. It calls for CLEARING Oregon's Voter Rolls by 2020, at which time anyone wanting to vote MUST register (again), but this time with proof of US citizenship. Let that sink in.

We will be discussing this issue, and other voting issues - as well as the new non-partisan ELECTION WATCH program - on 8/29, 6-8 pm at the Lucky Lab SE. The event is FREE and more info is in the "about" section in this post.

Election Watch will be the first nationwide program to ensure that at least one trained volunteer lawyer is in every county in the U.S. for the purpose of proactively addressing voter suppression BEFORE an election, as opposed to litigating after the damage is done. http://www.lawyersforgoodgovernment.org/blog/electionwatch

Come to the Portland Election Watch #SpiritedVoting HAPPY HOUR & Fundraiser event on 8/29 at the SE location of “Lucky Lab” from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to learn more about the program and help us raise the money we need to get it off the ground. The suggested donation for this event is $20, but feel free to donate MORE, or less. You can donate online here: http://www.lawyersforgoodgovernment.org/donate OR bring cash or a check made out to "Lawyers for Good Government Foundation."

Hope to see you there!

#SpiritedVoting is a fundraising effort to support Election Watch, a project by the Lawyers for Good Government (L4GG) Foundation, which is organized as a nonprofit and is seeking a 501(c)(3) tax-exemption designation. Upon the Foundation's receipt of an exemption determination from the IRS, contributions will be tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Please join us for an upcoming benefit concert for Immigration Counseling Service (ICS) to be held on Sunday, September 24, 2017, from 3:00 to 5:00 PM at the St. Andrew's Community Center.

ICS is Oregon’s oldest non-profit legal services organization providing critical assistance to our local community’s immigrants, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied children, to ensure their legal rights and representation. ICS was founded in 1978 by a longtime community advocate, Margaret Godfrey. Over the years, ICS has provided legal assistance to thousands of individuals in Oregon from over 90 countries around the world. Nearly 40 years later, ICS continues Margaret’s legacy, with a mission of strengthening Oregon’s communities by providing legal assistance to its most vulnerable members.

Still Kickin', a local recreational band that includes two ICS board members - will perform their eclectic mix of folk, blues and rock music. Together for 13 years, this 7-piece band plays cover hits by The Beatles, Peter Paul and Mary, Bonnie Raitt, Alison Kraus, John Haitt, Dolly Parton, John Sebastian, the Everly Brothers, Steve Earle and many more. We guarantee their original interpretations and arrangements will cause your feet to tap and your spirits to lift!

So join us for light refreshments and a good time for a good cause. You'll feel better for it.

Support Abortion Access in Hurricane-Affected Areas!
The Florida Room

Join NRO, CAIR and friends for a special fundraiser benefiting those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma & Jose

Access to safe abortion is difficult in many parts of the U.S., especially for people of color, low-income individuals, and other folks who experience oppression. Natural disasters like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Jose only make barriers worse. Not only are people unable to make it to their appointments, but during the hurricanes, many clinics had to close entirely, delaying people's appointments.

That’s why we’re raising money to support abortion access in Texas and Florida. The money collected will go directly to our sister funds in affected areas so that they can provide people with help to get the care they need.

We love how our community stands with us to fund abortion in Oregon and Idaho, and we hope you'll come out to support our friends in the South.

If you can't make it but still want to help- you can donate to us by clicking here:

https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/nroptions

and writing "hurricane" in the Special Purpose field. Or donate directly to Access Reproductive Care-Southeast, Inc., The Lilith Fund for Reproductive Equity, Central Florida Women's Emergency Fund, Clinic Access Support Network, Fund Texas Choice, Texas Equal Access Fund - TEA Fund, BROWARD WOMEN'S EMERGENCY FUND - BWEF

Disability Art and Culture Project's An Evening of Comedy
Curious Comedy Theater, 5225 NE Martin Luther King Jr

The Disability Art and Culture Project (DACP) invites you to attend our upcoming fundraiser!

Advance Tickets: $30, available now through Eventbrite! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/an-evening-of-comedy-featuring-nina-g-tickets-37469773100

Admission is $35 at the door, so make to sure to get your tickets early.

DACP will bring Nina G, the San Francisco Bay Area's favorite female stuttering stand up comedian (granted she is the only one), to Portland for an evening of comedy, and a silent auction!

'Nina G has been challenging attitudes about Disability since she did stand-up for the first time in 2010. “How many people with Disabilities does it take to screw in a light bulb?” Answer: “One to screw it in and 5 able bodied people to say 'You are such an inspiration!"' (Branch). She brings her humor to help people confront and understand social justice issues such as disability, diversity, and equity.

Our fundraiser will support the second biennial Portland ReelAbilities Disability Film Festival. Founded in 2007, ReelAbilities is dedicated to sharing the stories, lives and art of people with disabilities. It consists of award-winning films of the highest cinematic and artistic quality and is hosted in cities across the country. We are excited to bring these films back to Portland in the spring of 2018!

In addition to being a stand up comedian, Nina is also a disability activist, storyteller, children's book author and educator. Learn more about Nina G WWW.NinaGcomedian.com, her one person show: Going Beyond Inspirational, or purchase Nina's book: Once Upon An Accommodation: A Book About Learning Disabilities

“An Evening of Comedy” Featuring Nina G is made possible by the Northwest Health Foundation.

Pa'Puerto Rico-Mexico: Noche d' Galería Charity Event Auction
Trio Club

Latinos Unidos PDX and Milenio.org invite you to help us kick-off a series of events that pay tribute to the disaster-stricken lands that have inspired and shape the talent we bring to the Northwest.

This first event, a night of art; will provide you an opportunity to bid for some of best performers, artists and special event services in town. We will introduce you to the communities we are aiming to support in Mexico and Puerto Rico. We will also have live performances so stay tuned.

Our Mission

Mobilize Portland Oregon's Latino performing and visual artist community to raise funds to aid grassroots efforts at the local level in the Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Our Approach

Event and community organizers from the Portland metro area have united to form a fund-raising and fund-distribution strategy that is built on "la conciencia de la comunidad"; trust through community conscientiousness. During the early stages of organizing there was unanimous agreement that funds would need to reach more isolated communities that have been severely impacted but have received less attention and assistance. Rather than direct funds to larger disaster aid organizations, we decided to build upon the existing network of trust present in our local community to identify allies currently working on the ground to help their communities. 100% will be donated to help those in need. More details coming soon!

To learn more about MHPU! Www.MHPUnite.com

ABOUT CRAZY WISE:

What if a psychological crisis was seen as having the potential to be a positive transformative experience, instead of a “broken brain”?

Human-rights photographer Phil Borges witnessed how indigenous cultures around the world often identify “psychotic” symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential.

Back in the US, Phil follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Adam, 27, suffers devastating side effects from medications before embracing meditation. Ekhaya, 32, survives several suicide attempts before spiritual training to become a traditional South African healer.

CRAZYWISE introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see a psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease.

Revolution Comedy Presents: Stand Up to Literally Save the World
Curious Comedy Theater, 5225 NE Martin Luther King Jr

Revolution Comedy is a monthly fundraiser series fueled by the power of stand up comedy and hosted by Portland's funniest rabble rouser, Andie Main!

Ok friends buckle up, this last news cycle has been beyond tragic. In Oregon we lost The Gorge, In Puerto Rico they lost everything, and in Las Vegas people lost even more. I was torn about how to approach my show this month, so I've decided to try something new and support three different causes all at once. You can chose who to donate to at our show, and how much.

We normally charge $15 for the show and support our amazing causes in the cost of that ticket, but we will be able to get your cash to work faster by giving directly to the source via Donation Stations, and you can chose to help however you see fit with these featured organizations:

If you are super stressed about The Gorge and habitat restoration, why don't ya donate to EarthShare Oregon? Throughout Oregon and southwest Washington, EarthShare Oregon has engaged thousands of people and raised millions of dollars to support Oregon’s environmental legacy of clean water, fresh food, sustainable communities, healthy families, and access to nature.

If you want to donate to Puerto Rico we will be collecting for funds for American Black Cross. The American Black Cross (ABC) is a grassroots organization of volunteers that directly engages in rescues, provides relief and actively rebuilds communities in distress.

Or if you'd like to donate to help the victims of the tragedy in Las Vegas, we will be also be accepting donations for their GoFundMe

We also appreciate you bringing tips to support the artists who are donating their time to perform for you and oh my god do we have a dynamic line up for you to feast on! We've got headliner Susan Rice, with support from Cori Lucas, Dan Weber and more surprises to come!

Curious Comedy Theater is located at 5225 NE MLK

Doors at 6:00, show starts at 7:00, and ends by 8:30pm

All ages! Wheelchair accessible! Gender neutral bathrooms!

Subject matter may be offensive to certain people, but we never tolerate hate speech.
